DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF TWINE PISTONS

MOUNTED THE SINGLE CONNECTING ROD USING


DIFFERENT MATERIALS

ABSTRACT

Connecting rod is the mediator between the piston and the


crank. And its function is to transmit the thrust from the piston pin to
crank pin, thus converting the reciprocating motion of the piston to
rotary motion of the crank.
Generally one piston mounted the single connecting rod
and also connecting rod is manufactured using carbon steel and in
recent days aluminium alloys are used for manufacture the connecting
rods.
In this work existing connecting rod material is replaced
by beryllium alloy and magnesium alloy. And this also described the
modeling and analysis of twine pistons mounted the single connecting
rod.
FEA analysis was carried out by considering three
materials Al360, beryllium alloy and magnesium alloy. In this study a
solid 3D model of Connecting rod was developed using CREO 3.0
software and an analysis was carried out by using ANSYS 10.0
Software.

PROBLEM FORMULATION
The objective of the present study is to design and analysis
of two wheeler connecting rod and to find the best alternative material
of connecting rod. In the present study beryllium alloys and
magnesium alloys have taken in place of currently using materials
like Aluminium 360 for CAE analysis and a meaningful comparison
made among AL360, Beryllium alloy and Magnesium alloy for
choosing the alternative of existing material using for manufacture the
connecting rod.
